Datchet Open

Despite weather challenges and several of the normal touring suspects waiting on new boats, the first UK Flying Fifteen open meeting of the year was a great success, with visitors from Parkstone, Chew Valley, Hayling Island and Dun Laoghaire coming to Datchet. Racing on Saturday was abandoned due to a complete lack of wind which brought the benefit of time for our Irish visitors to watch the 6-Nations rugby – and made it easy for the English travellers to decide to come for the day on Sunday.

Sunday brought winds of force 3-4 and sun! The race team managed to fit in 4 races on a nice large course, and the windshifts provided a good test to sort out the fleet. Charles Apthorp/ Alan Green regained the Mercedes Trophy, with Ian Cadwallader/ Dave Sweet second and John Hanson/ Helen Seldon third. The full result are available by clicking here

A huge thank you to all our visitors for travelling vast distances and/ or setting very early alarms, and to the race team for their excellent management of the day.

See you all next year – or on the circuit


Mervyn Wright
(DWSC FF fleet Captain)
